Draft offering at the source. Pours brown with a finger of mocha froth. Some patchy lace sticks to the glass but otherwise displays solid powers of retention. Some lighter brown clarity is seem around the edges.
The aroma is roasty like coffee and chocolate. A bit earthy reminescent of saison yeast with some mild spice inclusion. A bit io herbs and earth to mineral inclusion. A hint of lemon is noted across the back with a little veggy and sulfuric note when swirled. The nose starts off fairly enjoyable and goes downhill unfortunately pretty fast.
Thw taste isnbitter and roasty like espresso and black patent grain. A bit of mineral inclusion is noted mixed with some earth tones. There is verybmild saison quality spicy yeast aspects to this kinda like the yeast wasnt stressed at all during fermentation. The aftertaste is a bit leather and has a hint of tobacco. Luckily those mineral notes were fairly surpressed here in the flavor.
This is a medium bodied brew with a modest amount of carbonation. At this point in my "drinking career" ive had a few coffee saisons and im honestly still not sold on the idea despite trying to enjoy them. This one was not bad, just the mineral aspect I could live without and would greatly increase my overall enjoyment if it wasnt there.

Enjoyed on tap at the brewpub. India black coffee saison.This batch at 6.9% abv. Local coffee that generates a good coffee aroma. Black bodied and lacey. Above average mouthfeel. Very coffee yet well done and tasty for what it is. Hopped, and I prefer that to coffee myself.

On-tap at the brewpub
A dark brown body with a thin, creamy cap. Good staying power, mild lacing. The nose is of citrus and piney hops with layers of bakers chocolate and coffee grounds. A touch of sourness also creeps in. Interesting layers of sweetness, bitterness, and sourness. On the palate, this guy slides right in. Notes of pine, oranges, and white grapefruit up front before semi-sweet chocolate and coffee grounds come into play. The finish is a touch of bitterness from the hops and coffee and some accompanying sourness. It's slight, and comes in at the tail end, but boy does it add an element. The touch of sourness really makes this a special saison. Medium body with perfect carbonation. Smooth, slightly creamy feel. Tremendous layers going on here. A damn good dark saison.
